I, the Wordsmith

by Jason Alan

I, the wordsmith,

forge phrases

in dank diction dungeons;

construct metaphors,

maxims and mottos in

valleys of vivacious verbiage.

I, the wordsmith,

scald vernacular to nigh combustion;

to scorch, a robust fever

searing in poetic grandeur.

I, the wordsmith,

deliver the hammer;

its arc is true and

vainly accurate.

striking song, pounding prose.

I, the wordsmith,

sculpt blistering expression;

shaping with formidable fury

as sparks fly, composing

incandescent symphonies,

pulsating, reverberating

among the corridors of thought:

the mind of the reader.
